Since 1999, South of France Body Care creators began crafting high quality and affordable soaps in the USA based on scents and life, well, in the South of France.
“The simple pleasure of a familiar scent – more than almost anything – holds the power to evoke memories of people we love, places we treasure, and stories we never tire of telling.” – Creators Katherine & Molly
Recently, South of France underwent a packaging face lift and a rename from South of France to SoF. Crafting soap from natural ingredients is at the heart of what SoF does. Their products are plant derived and never tested on animals while using organic and sustainable palm oil and organic Fair Trade shea butter, you can have a clean conscience with these soaps.
Not only is SoF women owned, but they strive to give back to communities in many ways including:
“Women for Women – SoF is a certified women-owned business and encourages women to fulfill their dreams. From donating products for women in shelters to disaster relief to supporting female entrepreneurs through Dress for Success and Women’s Business Enterprise Council (WBENC), SoF is inspired to inspire women. By helping them take care of what matters most they hope to help them be at their best for everyone else in their lives.
Matthew 25 Ministries & Free Store Food Bank – SoF has donated over 170K bars of soap in 2022 to these outstanding organizations, who are able to quickly get essential supplies to communities stricken by natural disasters as well as other people in need.
Dress for Success – SoF makes an annual contribution to Dress for Success to sponsor and support their female empowerment messaging and mission.
WBENC Events – SoF partners with the Women’s Business Enterprise Council to sponsor female empowerment events and donate products for participant bags.” [SoF website]
